I'm shocked at how many prohibited items I see for sale in the MD classified of Armslist. If they are stings... there are a lot of them. Guess the authorities are bored.

I think the story headline would be "Grimnar sells evil gun to random guy with no background check...see, loopholes do exist" rather than anything related to a straw purchase.

The definition of straw purchase is this...

"a criminal act in which something, especially a firearm, is bought by one person on behalf of another who is legally unable to make the purchase themselves."

The OP never confirmed that the person he met was legally able to make the purchase...why would he care if the second guy could qualify?

I'm sure there's another thread about this on MDS, but a friend just texted me this ...

Looks like Colt ARs are going to be harder to find.

Maybe not so much after today's announcement that Colt is going to be out of the civilian long-gun business.

Well, I am happy for the soon to be new owner of the M4A1.

Like the letter author, I'm not understanding how discontinuing retail/civilian sales will help them with gov contracts.

That consulting sidekick role could EASILY be perceived as him making a straw purchase for me, when it absolutely is no such thing.
But you didn't kick anyone's car. :-)

Certainly not because someone chose to not sell me a firearm....
This. Kicking the car changes everything.
